Governor Appointments to Boards and Commissions

Gubernatorial appointments are an ongoing process, with appointments occurring throughout the year.

Factors to Consider

Serving Kansas on a board or commission is both an honor and a privilege. Public service, however, is not for everyone. Individuals applying for a board or commission should be aware of the following:

  • As expected in an open and democratic government, the activities of boards and commissions are subject to public and press scrutiny.
  • Successful applicants may be required to complete a financial disclosure statement as a condition of serving on the board or commission.
  • Unless otherwise specified by law, most boards and commissions meet quarterly each year. However, some boards may meet more frequently due to the responsibilities and functions of the board.
  • Service on boards and commissions is generally voluntary, and unless otherwise specified by law, members of boards and commissions are not paid a stipend. Members of boards and commissions are typically reimbursed for their expenses.
